11 Favorite Community Amenities Perfect for Summertime

With summertime upon us, there’s nothing we love more than seeing homebuyers enjoying every amenity their community has to offer. With the kids out of school and the chance to enjoy the warmer weather, how could you not take advantage of the amazing amenities our communities offer? So, we’ve lined up a list of some of our favorite community amenities that could be perfect for you and your family this summer.

Swim Park

If you’re looking for resort-style living in your community, look no further than communities like Eagle Landing in Orange Park, FL and Orchard Ridge in Austin, TX. These communities offer incredible resort-style pools for the whole family to enjoy. With views like these, staycations sound like the perfect family vacation.

Biking Trails

With the incredible biking trails in a number of our communities you’ll not only get your exercise for the day, but beautiful views along the way. Enjoy this amenity in a community like Twin Villas at West Grange in Longmont, CO.  

Kayak Launch

If you love exploring out on the water, kayaking can be an incredibly fun activity. With the streamline feel of gliding through the water, nothing sounds better to a kayaker than an area closeby to launch. We love the fact that our Plummer Creek community in Yulee, FL is opening up a private kayak launch within the community.

Community Center

Stay informed about community events, meet your neighbors and relax within lounges at community centers that are within neighborhoods like Heritage Ridge in Berthoud, CO and Markland in St. Augustine, FL.  

Splash Pad

We’re sure nothing makes the kids happier on a hot summer day than a visit to the splash pad. One of our favorite splash pads is coming to Beacon Lake in St. Augustine, FL soon!  

Golf Course

If you can’t get enough of being out on the green, a community with a golf course is perfect for you. One of our favorite golf courses is within our Greenside at World Golf Village community in St. Augustine, FL. With spacious home sites both on and off the golf course, you’re never too far away from the fun.  

Athletic Club

Many of our communities are focused on providing environments that emphasize healthy living like Headwaters in Dripping Springs, TX and Laureate Park in Orlando, FL. At each of these communities you’ll not only find dedicated workout spaces, but classes to help residents reach their fitness goals.      

Hiking Trails

Enjoy nature to the fullest by hiking some of our favorite trails within communities like Easton Park in Austin, TX. With more than 13 miles of trail systems and over 300 acres of pathways, we’re sure you’ll never get bored of hiking through the great outdoors.  

Recreation Field

If you and your family would just like a great open space to enjoy, a recreation field could be perfect this summer. Not only could you challenge the next door neighbors to a game of soccer, you could win! You could also relax by joining the neighbors in an outdoor concert or watching a movie like they do on the large event lawn in Inspiration in Aurora, CO?  


Do you remember when you were a kid and all the fun you had playing in the neighborhood playground? Now your kids can make those same kind of memories with their friends this summer with a playground like this one in Embrey Mill in Stafford, VA.  

Tennis Courts

If you love challenging your friends to tennis matches because well you ace the course, you probably will love having tennis courts within your community. Play to your heart’s content in a community like Reserve at Eagle Harbor in Fleming Island, FL.     When building your dream home, deciding on a perfect community for you and your family can come down to many different factors, but we believe you should be part of a community that fits your family’s lifestyle. Not only are you creating the perfect home, but you want to make sure the surrounding environment emphasizes what’s most important to you.
